What happens during a general therapy session?
General therapy sessions use a combination of psychotherapy and hypnosis/trance. The first half of the session is spent helping clients to focus on what they want to achieve, helping them to utilise their existing strengths and resources in order to help them achieve realistic and practical goals. Using specially designed questioning techniques, we will talk about the progress you have already made, and discuss the changes you wish to make. I’ll be encouraging you to express yourself positively, focusing on solutions rather than dwelling on problems. This is the foundation for the second half of the session where we use trance to consolidate those changes, and allow the subconscious mind to accept them.
During the trance part of the session clients typically lie on the couch, covered with a blanket, with some gentle music playing in the background. I will then guide you through some relaxation and visualisation techniques that will guide you gently into a trance. During trance your subconscious mind will begin to work on finding the solutions you need to move your life forward. It is important to note that during trance you remain completely in control and no-one can make you do anything that you would not be happy to do out of trance.
How many sessions will I need?
All general therapy clients receive an initial consultation which last from 50-60 minutes with no obligation to book further sessions. This is an opportunity for you to meet me and gain an understanding of the process of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and how our brains create a wide range of unwanted symptoms and behaviours. You will have the chance to explore how you would like your life to be, how we can work together to achieve your preferred future and you can also ask any questions. A FREE hypnotherapy relaxation download is provided and is an important part of your treatment.
I aim to work with you as quickly as possible and tailor your treatment to your individual needs. Everybody is different and moves at their own pace. There is never any pressure for you to move quicker or slower than you need to, and you are always in control. You decide when you have achieved what you want to achieve and need no further sessions.

"After trying ,unsuccessfully for quite a while, to overcome my negative issues, I found Caroline’s help of great benefit. She is very encouraging and open to looking at problems and their causes with a positive and fresh approach. Each step is explained and discussed clearly. I now feel a much stronger and more positive person, able to deal with my issues ,using the techniques she has given me. Its been a very beneficial experience and I’ve learnt to take control and relax again."
"It took courage to seek help but I’m so glad I did. To have the benefit of Caroline’s physiological and psychological knowledge of our brain’s responses , clearly explained, I quickly knew I was in safe hands. What was offered in the sessions was non-judgemental and positive encouragement, with proven strategies to still myself and think logically and reflect, in order to break unhealthy habits and thought patterns. I gained confidence, by using these tools, to control how I respond to life’s challenges. I cannot rate her help highly enough"
